Tenacity, Tolerance, Teamwork
Hi, I am Kirsten Lightfoot, Head Teacher at Trident Prep. It is with enthusiasm that I tell you about our school.
Trident Prep is a fantastic little school set in the beautiful grounds of the Kansanshi Golf Estate. We are a relatively small, multi-cultural school where all pupils, and all staff work together to foster and fulfill a love of learning.
We do this through promoting excellence and through enjoyment of the curriculum. Teaching and learning is enquiry based and learning at Trident Prep is active and fun! For English, Maths and Science we use the Cambridge curriculum, and pupils sit the Cambridge Checkpoint exams in year 6. The other subjects, like social studies, history, geography and religious studies; we follow the Primary International Curriculum. This is a robust curriculum, which is learner focused in its approach. It is topic lead and allows pupils to make links between subjects, thus building on their prior knowledge and linking their learning.
Our philosophy is one where all children can learn and are encouraged and supported to achieve their own personal learning goals. We pride ourselves in the effective rapport that we have with our pupils. We believe that this allows our children to feel safe and happy at school.
Trident Prep has a strong shared culture, based on our values of Responsibility, Respect, Innovation, Integrity and Industry. Are children and staff are encouraged to reflect and refer to these values.
Our extra-curricular programme allows pupils to develop emotionally, socially and physically through a range of sporting activities and clubs. These range from cookery and needle craft to hockey and cross-country. Our aim is that through these activities we encourage good sportsmanship, athleticism and foster confidence in our pupils. We do our best to compete against other schools, both locally and away however travelling to other parts of Zambia does provide some challenges for us.
We would relish the opportunity to show you around, please do come and visit us. Alternatively, you are welcome to contact the school directly.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this.
